Second Helpings of Birthdays

CASology's Birthday cue came in such a perfect time, for the list of birthday cards that were needed for February is a long one.

I had been playing with water-colored backgrounds... which I think I've finally gotten the hang of...this one called to me for a bit of inlaid die cutting.


I've used Mama Elephant's birthday die, and tiny little sentiments stamped onto vellum tucked behind.  They come from a SSS's little birthday set I received on my birthday last year - from SSS!!

Off to the laundry room!  Have a great Monday.. =]
